Supporting COVID Safe Initiatives

We’ve got a kaleidoscope of world-class racing, style and entertainment lined-up for you in 2021. Of course, our raceday experience is different at the moment and we’ll need your support in maintaining a COVID Safe venue. Here's how.


We are pleased to advise that when NSW reaches 70 per cent full vaccination rate in early October,  Australian Turf Club will subsequently be able to host 5,000 spectators on Everest Day at Royal Randwick on Saturday 16 October. At this stage, we anticipate that a minimum of 5,000 patrons will be permitted to attend racedays thereafter .

Everest Day and the world’s richest race on turf will now be Sydney’s first major event as we emerge from lockdown.

Please note the NSW Government has stated that all those entering Royal Randwick must be fully vaccinated.

We are working through ticket allocations and a plan to ensure a wonderful and safe day for all those attending. We will communicate with you further as plans continue to be finalised in welcoming you back to the track.


Following the NSW Government’s announcement of an extension to stay at home orders for persons who reside or work in Greater Sydney, only Essential Personnel will be permitted to attend all race meetings scheduled until 15 October 2021 will be closed to ATC Members, Owners and the general public.

All hospitality is cancelled for these racedays. A member of the Sales Team will be in contact to provide options on rescheduling hospitality bookings.

All tickets will be cancelled and will not remain valid for use.

All paid General Admission tickets will be automatically refunded via Ticketmaster. There is no need to contact Ticketmaster or the Australian Turf Club – all refunds will be automatically processed, with funds returned to credit cards within 5-7 business days.



COVIDSafe racedays

In order to deliver a COVIDSafe raceday we ask you to:

  • Scan the Service NSW QR code upon entry and fill out your details
  • Observe 1.5 metre social distancing.
  • If you have to catch public transport, wear a mask, allow extra travel time and plan ahead by checking real-time capacity indicators as you may need to wait for the next service with available physical distancing capacity.
  • Anyone who has been to current COVID hotspots must immediately get tested and self-isolate until further advice is provided by NSW Health prior to attending the racecourse. Click here to view the latest list of hotspots. 
  • You must remain seated at all times, except for when moving with purpose.
  • We strongly encourage patrons wear masks indoors and outdoors unless eating or drinking.
